Writing is a cathartic process in which I find my voice in different facets of each poem. Poetry, is a unique discourse of reflections



Disastrous end of a love affair

Calamity in the wake of the fallout

Catastrophes bemoan the wind

Misfortune to the hearts involved

Heartbreak came at an expensive price

Ruin reputations bought for a night of illicit passion

Adversity fashioned the road to redemption

Mishap or coincidence lover’s duplicity revealed

Rage of uncontrollable obsession led to an

Upheaval of reprisal sorting out the victims

Cataclysmic tempo builds to a crescendo

Damage to lives unfold

Shattered emotions lay bare

Chaos ensued sorting out the fallen reflections

Bedlam erupted two souls entangled with each other

Pandemonium could not be stilled

Anarchy warped the minds of survivors

As they question why anyone did not see

The tragedy before it happened
